Pastor Rob served at our sending church, Calvary Baptist Church, from January, 2010 through 2012. Prior to serving at Calvary, Rob served in churches in Pennsylvania, Ohio, and Virginia in various pastoral roles from children, to youth and family, to music, to administration, to lead pastor. He studied at Moody Bible Institute before attending Liberty University (B.S. in Religion) and Liberty Baptist Theological Seminary (M.A.R.).
Pastor Rob is a passionate follower of Jesus Christ and it is his desire to encourage, teach, and inspire others to live a life of radical commitment to Jesus as well. God has blessed Rob and his wife, Kelley, with three wonderful children, Ella, Jack, and Levi.
Pastor Mark has enjoyed a diversity of pastoral ministry experiences through the years. His experience has spanned several states and roles ranging from children, youth, family, college, and discipleship to music, administration, teaching, leadership development, solo pastor, and senior pastor. He has degrees from Word of Life Bible Institute (Diploma, Bible), Moody Bible Institute (B.A., Pastoral Studies; B.A. Communications, Electronic Media), Liberty Baptist Theological Seminary (M.A.R. & M. Div., Theology; Th.M., Church History), and Gordon-Cornwell Theological Seminary (D. Min., Revival and Reform; Renewing Congregational Life)
Pastor Mark's driving passion and hope in ministry is to be part of a ministry that shares his desire to live a life of such fervent faith in Jesus Christ that others are compelled to passionately pursue Christ in all their uniqueness with the ultimate result of great multiplication of zealous Christ followers (Philippians 3:10, Colossians 1:28-29; Acts 6:7). Mark is married to Holly and they have two children, Mackenzie and Ethan.
Johnathan Reichart is not normal, he is weird. This has been the defining word for his life, and he is happy about that. He enjoys the big picture, the grand vision, and what could be. He lives with his wife and four kids on a hill in Staunton. By day he is making calls, driving around the Valley, and working with blind and visually impaired students.
At home, he tries to encourage his wife by cleaning, changing diapers, making meals, and reading bed time stories. His wife Sarah really does all these things, but Johnathan tries to take credit for them. Johnathan and Sarah have four children, Benjamin (8), Isaac (6), Rosalee (4) and Daniel (1).
The Name, Jesus, is everything to his existence and his outlook on life. He believes that the local church must be an integral part to every believers life and wants to model that for his children.
